My MIL has made remarks to my husband that she doesn’t understand why we need a nanny for our infant since I am able to WFH (I’m a biglaw associate). She also doesn’t get why we have a cleaner and dog walker and seems to imply we’re wasting our money by outsourcing funds on things we can do. She was a SAHM so I guess I understand why she feels that way, but how do I explain to her why these things are necessary? I actually love my MIL but this is driving me nuts.

So I went through recruiting at ACN and the recruiter said they want to go forward with an offer. We discussed some numbers and she said she'll get back in a week. It's been 2 weeks and now I'm getting total radio silence. I was referred for the role and the guy who referred me also got a mail stating that they want to move with the offer. Anyone got any idea what could be happening?

I’ve just started my career 2 years back and I really want to have an international exposure. I don’t want to change my career path and stick to consulting. The only options I have is: 1.
